Description

Nubian Queen Kandake Candace Sculpture Bust. From the land along the Nile, this beautiful “Kandake,” or Nubian queen, is immortalized in sculpture with her regal bearing. Our museum-quality sculpt is cast in quality designer resin and hand-painted to highlight the royal headdress, classic jewelry, and striking features of this elegant ruler. Kandake or Kentake, also known as Candace, was the title for queens and queen mothers of the ancient African empire of Kush (also known as Nubia). The name Candace and its variants derive from the title Kandake. In the New Testament of the Christian Bible, a treasury official of “Candace, queen of the Ethiopians” returning from a trip to Jerusalem was baptised by Philip. A legend in the Alexander Romance claims that Candace of Meroë fought Alexander the Great. In fact, Alexander never attacked Nubia, and never attempted to move further south than the oasis of Siwa in Egypt. Later, the kandake Amanirenas, as reported by Strabo, fought a war with the army of the Roman Empire under Augustus.
